The Toshiba Chromebook 2 (CB35-C3350) is a good middle ground if you're considering a chromebook, but don't want an underpowered system. Its Intel Core i3 processor and bright display don't make it feel like a compromise, and if you're able to work without Windows programs or features, it can keep you productive. I do think 32GB of local storage, rather than 16GB, would be more reasonable for those files that you need to keep on the laptop or must have when you can't get online, especially given the price. Though the Toshiba Chromebook 2 is a solid Chrome OS-equipped laptop that may appeal to those seeking a bit more processing power, the Asus Chromebook Flip (C100PA-DB02) remains our Editors' Choice.

If you're shopping for a Chromebook and cost is no object, our advice hasn't changed—get the Google Pixel. But for almost all of us, cost is very much an object, and the new Toshiba Chromebook 2 occupies an appealing position. Yes, you can buy two inexpensive, non-IPS, 1,366x768 Chromebooks for the same money, but the Toshiba is a premium model that's within reach of many buyers.

If you’ve tried Chromebooks before, and thought they were too weak to use, this latest Toshiba Chromebook 2 is what you’ve been looking for. With the best Peacekeeper benchmark we’ve ever seen on a Chromebook, and rare slowdowns in our day-to-day usage tests, it’s more than good. It’s great! It feels like you’re using Chrome on a much more expensive laptop.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
